Huntsville/ Madison and The Little Yellow Postcards

8 Replies

May I ask that you please be considerate of homeowners that are being bombarded with these things? While there was once a time that sending out postcards generated a lot of leads, it is now a really annoying practice to homeowners and investors. People in this area are starting to be very vocal about it. Personally, I don't have an excessively large portfolio but I get postcards, texts, unmarked letters, and interrupted with phone calls daily on my phones, my husbands phone, and now my CHILD's phone! I signed us up on the DO NOT CALL list but somehow, wholesalers and other investors are able to circumnavigate this. There is no way to OPT OUT. Before the investment BOOM in Huntsville this was just a mild interruption, but now it has reached a level of ridiculousness. I suggest being more creative in your investment opportunities. 

Ha, nope! I understand why so many are looking for off-market deals. Huntsville has a great growth story but MLS deals are hyper competitive right now. And those that want to execute the BRRRR strategy and leave no cash in the deal have essentially no MLS inventory to work with.

Do what I do when bored. Call them up and make them spend a lot of time generating an offer.

Then circle the part saying the offer may be assigned and call the REA.

I absolutely do not get why these skimmers think they are investors.

I live in what has to be one of the most competitive markets in the U.S., and we have snagged three amazing deals from the MLS within the last 12 months. The deals are there. Finding them requires hard work. Maybe that's why so many are looking for some kind of short cut.

@Steve Morris   lol what are you talking about?  Most contracts in America are assignable.  Those "skimmers" are providing value by actually finding the deal, and bringing together seller and buyer.

Legal is not ethical - SADZ.

Brokers actually get sellers FMV instead of trying to skim.
